Brownfields Grant Community MeetingThe City of Columbia is pleased to announce the Brownfields Grant Community Meeting. The City of Columbia was recently awarded a $300,000 community-wide assessment grant through the EPA Brownfields Program. The grant provides funding for the City to inventory, characterize, assess, conduct a range of planning activities, develop site-specific cleanup plans, and conduct community involvement related to brownfield sites. A brownfield is a property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant. It is the City’s goal to work together with the community and stakeholders to stimulate cleanup and economic development of identified brownfield sites.

As community leaders, we invite you to attend and reach out to other community members and stakeholders to attend and participate in the discussion and long range planning of the community-wide assessment grant.
